Alabama Shakes performed "Gimme All Your Love" off their new album, Sound & Color, on SNL this weekend.

Alabama Shakes performed “Gimme All Your Love” off their new album, Sound & Color, on SNL this weekend.

Alabama Shakes singer/guitarist Brittany Howard’s lung capacity will one day allow her to:

A) power a Mars expedition

B) summit Everest without additional oxygen

C) build a Stairway to Heaven

D) stop bullets in mid-air Matrix-style

E) breathe life into the lifeless corpse of rock’n’roll

F) all of the above

I possess no scientific evidence to back any of these claims. All I have to support my hyperbole is video of Alabama Shakes playing “Gimme All Your Love” on “SNL”. The chorus – Good Lawd, the chorus!!!! – consists of Howard huffin’ and puffin’ and blowin’ the whole Studio 8H in Rockefeller Center down with her all-caps demands of “GIMME ALL YOUR LOVE” and “GIMME ALL YOU GOT, BABY”.

Listen for yourself.
